mp exteriorMarquette Plaza is a high-rise in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota located at 250 Marquette Avenue. Designed by Gunnar Birkerts, it was home to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis from 1973 to 1997. In 1997, the property underwent a multi-year renovation and an addition which was completed in 2002. These renovations transformed Marquette Plaza into one of the finest Class A properties in Minneapolis, converting the vault space in the underground chambers into multiple-powered shell spaces for data center tenants.

In 2011, Marquette Plaza become the first downtown Minneapolis building to earn LEED Platinum status. This certification, granted by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the most prestigious and challenging level of LEED certification to achieve and illustrates the building’s transformation and leadership in the greening movement of Downtown Minneapolis.

With over 20 years of mission critical tenancy and infrastructure investment, 250 Marquette is one of Minneapolis’ most connected and fiber rich locations.
